Protectors of privacy have interpreted state law to the outer limits of absurdity. We hope Austin High School Principal Joe Brown stands alone in conjuring the idea that publishing honor rolls violates students' privacy and therefore they should not be released to the newspaper. Brown has relented, at least for the moment, and the Austin Daily Herald will resume publishing the honor roll, Managing Editor Dan Fields reports. It remains a disturbing set of circumstances, however. Brown had decided last month to end publication of the honor roll as a matter of data privacy.

A headline in Wednesday's Republican Eagle read, "Vikings hit rock bottom in latest scandal." I wrote it, and I meant it. For those who don't know, during the Vikings annual charity snowmobiling event near Onamia, Minn., a 30-year-old women allegedly was sexually assaulted while socializing with members of the Vikings organization. Charges were not immediately filed, but the investigation focused on several members of the Vikings, both players and personnel, a sheriff from Mille Lacs County said. Regardless of what happens, it's a sad situation.
MANKATO, Minn. -- After grabbing a two-goal lead early in the second period in Tuesday night's Section 1A playoff game against Mankato West, everything was looking good for the Red Wing girls hockey team. But the Wingers couldn't hold off the Scarlets as Mankato West came away with a 4-2 win. Red Wing ended its season at 8-14-1. "We didn't come to play," Coach Bay Shock said. "The last two games, we really played well. Even in the first period when we were up, we couldn't control the puck. I think we were a little nervous and apprehensive." K.C.
